Have you always thought that Northern Italian cuisine is dull and boring???
No NO NOOOO….you are wrong!
Take a look here, these are just a sample of the large selection of gourmet food we offer during our Alps and Dolomites tour
These are rather large gnocchi made with stale bread, soaked in milk, then enriched with eggs, aromatic herbs and sautéed speck and onion. Belonging to the peasant tradition, canederli are born as a poor and recycled dish, to avoid throwing away old, now stale bread. You can taste them in a rich and tasty meat broth. Or you can dress them with melted butter or a delicious tomato sauce.
A difficult name to pronounce for a delicious dessert. Literally the translation is emperor’s sweet omelet and this is why….Around the end of 1800 Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria had ordered a crêpe from his cook, but the latter, busy preparing dinner for the royal family, forgot the crêpe on the fire and left it to burn. As if that weren’t enough, in his haste to correct the mistake, he tried to turn it and broke it. The poor cook had to come up with a solution: he broke it completely, covered the burns with sugar and accompanied it with jam. Miraculously, the emperor fell in love with it, so much that it became his favorite dessert.
Traditionally, it is served with cranberry or currant jam but we already know that you will try to sprinkle them with chocolate cream!!!
Smoked pork knuckle with potatoes and sauerkraut
This recipe contains all the rich and authentic flavors of South Tyrolean cuisine The smoky flavor of the meat that melts in your mouth goes perfectly with the taste of the potatoes and the slightly sour taste of the sauerkraut.
After a nice long walk in the mountains what can feel better than enter one of the welcoming covered with carved wood “stube” to taste a slice of still warm strudel?
Athough there are numerous variations, both in terms of filling and in terms of dough, the basic ingredients are certainly apples, pine nuts, raisins, sugar and aromas such as lemon and cinnamon.
Let’s not forget a huge variety of dairy products
